This is my boy Asher. He is the light of my life. He is my heart. When I named him Asher, I hoped he would become the definition of his name . . . Happiness, Joy, Blessing. He surely is my joy. I want to encourage Moms to shine in their parenting, and to raise little people whose lives sparkle with the light of the Lord.
The word FELICITY means the quality or state of great happiness. It means joy, joyousness, BLISS, DELIGHT, satisfaction, & pleasure. I hope that through this blog, you live with "Felicity"!
This handsome man is my Steven. He is the brains behind The Felicity Bee. From analytics, to editor, to recipe taster, to brand supervisor . . . he does a little bit of everything over here, and offers the male point of view in creating your best life. He is my strength, my encouragement, my husband, and my Best Friend.
"I sought the Lord, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
I looked to Him and Sparkled,
And my face was not ashamed.
A Bit About Erika . . .
There is just something about the name of Jesus that causes the lame to leap and the deaf to hear. That name causes the blind to see, and the dead to live again. I have a great passion for this man called Jesus. From the time I was a little girl, everything I put my hands to were to honor Him. I cannot tell you ABOUT ME . . . without telling you . . . ABOUT HIM.
WRITER, ARTIST, SINGER, SURVIVING LIFE, AND SAVED BY GRACE.
I began playing the piano at age five and learned what it means to worship to Him. I started in the theater at age twelve and learned how to be a light for others to see Him through me. I earned my degree in Music Education and my Master's degree in Writing and Literature and discovered how to teach the youth of our generation about His love. I have been in church ministry from the time I was fifteen years old and learned to strengthen His church. I opened a non-profit community theater and have run a successful business where I learned how to not compromise and how to bringglory to His name through my businesses.
He is my beginning and my end. Everything I write, sing, preach, and speak is to bring honor, blessing, and glory to His name.
As a result, He has directed my every path. He even held my hands through a marriage that wasn't His will. He gave me grace through my guilt & shame over a divorce that was never in my childhood dreams, and He blessed even the mistake of my marriage, with a little boy who is the joy of my life.
He gave me a new dream of a relationship with a man of HIS choice . . . my Steven . . . and we were happily married on August 30, 2017. He redeemed my story with His goodness and grace.
I have learned through the pain, ups, downs, highs, lows, strength, weakness, mountains, and valleys of life . . . that when you are hand in hand with the man JESUS, you can rule and reign in life. It may not look like the life you imagined as a little girl, but you can REIGN and RULE in this life when you are following in the path of the KING of kings.
